Overview: Is there something missing from your indie game? Is the story emotionally flat? Or does the pacing of your levels feel unrewarding? Every game tells a story, whether it is pre-authored or player-created. Learning about storytelling doesn't only help you shape your indie game's narrative but it can also give you insights into how to improve overall player-experience. Mata Haggis is a game developer and professor with 15 years experience in indie and large studios. He will share his practical tips for creating compelling drama and show how the same ideas can bring new life to your indie game's design.
